An eclectic mixture of furnishings created this interesting and inviting living room. A classic contemporary Noguchi coffee table found a home sitting on an oriental area rug. The two classic side chairs covered in black suede were "discovered" on Ebay.

The existing fireplace wall was totally redone. The doors, fireplace surround and original mantle were eliminated to create an updated, contemporary look. Stacked stone was placed up to the ceiling to create a totally new look. In addition, the faux logs in the firebox were removed and replaced the glass crystals.

Where to place a pottery collection? Challenge solved! The perfect spot was a half wall in the living room.... When designing the display area, the back was left open to show off the beautiful adobe wall - keeping the character of the home in tact. The custom cabinets now accommodate a collection of southwest pottery and other collectibles in the adobe style home.

Patterned bolsters were added. Since a special sized ottoman/coffee table was needed, the ottoman was custom made. Faux leather was used; nail heads enhanced the ottoman. A faux zebra rug was place...More
